I have braided armpit hair though.

That should give me at least a 30 spot bump.

my goal is 70% every event (75% seems a lil greedy as anything can happen)

its a high goal, but shouldnt all goals be high?

A high Pick percentage is good but Points are more important



Can't agree more, I have a very high pick %(74%) but I always seem to cost myself some points with poor round and finishing selections.

Thats the difference between top 20 and first!

Man I don't know what it is. I'm going to sound cocky here, but I'll say it anyway. I think I know a shit ton about MMA and about what actually goes into a fight. Somehow, though I'm only a "good" playground picker and not a "great" one. I don't know how guys consistently score top 10 in points and top 10 in earnings on events. Fricken crystal ball workin sonsa........

Honestly, though- this is my first season that I've really dedicated myself to my picks and I'm decently satisfied with my points but I'd like to be a top 10 guy. I just can't break it. As for money... well... I suck at parleys cuz I like to hit big So that always bites me in the ass

I feel you there man, 69th is the highest rank ive ever been at in the season and 77th is the highest ive ranked in any event... Top ten means ridiculous skills. Professional Skills.

If you are above 66%, you're good...

The great pickers know not only how to pick the winner, but HOW they win. That is the hard part.

I'm not bad, but we have a few guys on our team who are clairvoyant...


ME: 44 wins - 17 losses (72% win rate)


I am also the Parlay Master... 6 for 6 this season....
